…Paris Hilton is running for president?

Though it’s easy to dismiss her as a dumb blond that just got lucky, I’ve always felt that Paris Hilton might just have us all fooled. She’s taken a rich father, good looks, and a hard partying lifestyle and managed to turn herself into a brand name, a self-made millionaire, and a media darling by just being Paris. She’s survived a sex tape, a prison stint, more controversy and accusations than a Michael Jackson day care center, and yet still manages to capture headlines at will.

Her latest move into the spotlight involved a brief and unapproved clip in the middle of a John McCain ad.

Not to be outdone, Paris fired back with an ad of her own, announcing her run for presidency, and a surprisingly fluid solution to the gas crisis.

Never one to waste an opportunity, she also managed to squeeze in a full minute of bikini-clad eye candy, and enough “that’s hot” to make a mix tape.

Think she doesn’t know where her money making talents are?

…Jesus was held hostage?

CNN Jesus

CNN used to be the place to go for news that mattered, but it’s now (sadly) become the place to go for sensationalized, tabloid worthy garbage.

The following video is a perfect example of the type of ‘crap’ that CNN now reports on:

When the reporter started to read the ransom note, I actually fell out of my chair from laughing so hard.

Poopie from your wieners?

Wiener poopie?


CNN, how far you’ve fallen.
